How many years did the KU Relays have a marathon? How many people ran in it? I heard there was many as 2,000 at one time.

Local distance runner Steve Riley, citing records statistician Jack Crook’s State Honor Roll, said the years there was a certified course for the KU Relays Marathon were 1978, 1979, 1987 and 1988, which does not include the years it was a noncertified race, 1970 being the first. The largest number of finishers for the years the race was certified was 313 in 1979, according to unofficial research.
